Last night, we had a barbecue at the house. Gazza cooked most of the food; cous-cous stuffed peppers, t-bone steak, lamb chops and grilled brandied pineapple. Sis made a pavlova and Horlicks cupcakes. Of course the bbq wouldn't be complete without some bangers and corn. Gazza likes to buy the cheese filled ones. Damn they're lethal! It was the first time I’ve spent new years with kids running around the house. More to come? The boys and babies were very well behaved. Well the babies were fast asleep by 9pm, while the boys busied themselves watching Madagascar in the tv room. At around 11:30 we made our way down to Lang’s shop on Jalan Mesui to watch the fireworks from the roof top. It was nice watching the fireworks through the kids eyes. They were so excited and happy. Standing there on the roof, I feel good about the new year. At 00:30 the first of hopefully many wonderful moments came along. My close friend in Oz announced that her boyfriend proposed and they are now engaged! Yaaaay! I am so happy for them. Its a good thing I am not superstitious as it will my fourth time as bridesmaid! Happy New Year everyone! I wish all of you a fantastic new year filled with greatness, gratitude and gastronomical delights!
